Hornets’ Miles Bridges denied entry into Canada, out vs. Raptors due to "personal reasons"

Dec 18, 2023

Miles Bridges was denied entry to Canada on Sunday night, and he will miss the Charlotte Hornets' game against Toronto Raptors on Monday due to "personal reasons," the Hornets announced.

In a since-deleted tweet, Bridges wrote that he "got denied in the 6." The 6 is a nickname for Toronto because of its six phone area codes and often used by the rapper and Toronto native, Drake.

Roderick Boone of the Charlotte Observer reported that the team is attempting to resolve the matter so Bridges can suit up. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, however, the issue is "unlikely to be reversed in time" for Monday night's game. At this time, no reason has been officially given for why Bridge was denied.
